Recent developments in the judicial field

  • Romanian Rule of Law Reform: A Two-Dimensional Approach, by Martin Mendelski - January 2011
  • A debate is under way on the accountability of judges and prosecutors (legislative amendments imposing tougher penalties for serious disciplinary offences). A campaign against corruption in the judiciary has been launched (video clips). The codes of criminal and civil procedure are to be revised, including the juvenile justice system. Court decisions can now be accessed on line. All the Council of Europe recommendations in the field of justice have been translated into Romanian and circulated to the courts.
